Remote learning is part of the CMCSS Continuum of Learning. CMCSS has a plan for individual classrooms, a school, or the entire district to have students learning remotely if needed at any time. As the conditions surrounding the pandemic change, the district will be prepared to continue to provide high quality education to all students, no matter the circumstances.
Planned District-wide Remote Learning Days
CMCSS will be implementing five pre-planned, district-wide remote learning days for traditional students before Winter Break. With remote learning, students will not report to the school building as they will access learning via the laptops provided by the district.
Schools will provide more information to families on how to access remote learning and meals, for those who need them, in the coming days. The following are the planned remote learning days:
- November 2 (day before Election Day)
- November 23-25 (3 days before Thanksgiving Break)
- December 21 (day before Winter Break)
The decision to implement these remote learning days was based on two factors. First, we received feedback from families after the calendar was revised in August regarding the shortening of Thanksgiving and Winter breaks. Implementing remote learning days will allow families to have that time together while still ensuring students are engaged in learning. Secondly, these pre-planned remote days will allow our Technology Department to evaluate and repair any issues that could arise for students in the event that multiple schools or the entire district needed to transition to remote learning due to the circumstances of the pandemic. So far, the district has had around 2,500 of our almost 23,000 traditional students who have had to learn remotely for a period of time due to COVID-19 reasons since the first day of school.
The CMCSS Technology Department has developed a series of troubleshooting tips and tricks to help families who may experience challenges during remote learning.

Learning Mentor Information
While students are engaged in remote learning, parents and guardians may benefit from additional information regarding the learning platforms used by CMCSS.
While Learning Mentors are generally more active in the CMCSS K-12 Virtual model, parents and guardians may still be interested in the resources available to Learning Mentors through the Learning Mentor training. These resources are best used to engage parents in remote learning when needed.
For questions specific to your student’s classroom assignments, please reach out to their teacher. For general attendance information please reach out to your child’s enrolled school.
